Paly Robotics Boosters (Website, Handout)



Paly Robotics is a student-led organization that has been embedded in the Palo Alto Community since 1996.

We are a part of the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition where, every year, we design, build, and program a 120 lbs robot from scratch in 6 weeks.

However, our team is a lot more than robots. Our student-led structure means that all of our operations are planned and executed by the students, instilling responsibility and leadership in our members. Our team provides students with real-world STEAM learning experience and opportunities to develop collaboration, critical thinking, and problem solving skills, preparing our students well for college and beyond.

Our team is a platform for students with a variety of interests to succeed through our different subteams. Students in our Build, Design, Software, and Strategy & Scouting subteams learn and develop many technical skills. Students in our Business subteam apply entrepreneurial skills to apply for grants and sponsorships and our Art subteam creates animations, graphic designs, and team merchandise.


Paly Robotics Boosters is a non profit 501 (c) (3) organization that operates exclusively for charitable and educational support for the Palo Alto High School Robotics Team (a.k.a. Paly Robotics Team 8).
Paly Robotics Boosters helps fund the financial aspects of the team from building the robot to scholarships for competitions. We rely on parent donors and corporate sponsors to maintian the excellence of this progam. Some of these activities include: robot parts and materials, competition registration, outreach activities in PAUSD and greater Palo Alto community, and management of our machines. We truly appreciate your support.
